Adam Douglas will have 3 canvases in the 6x6@110 show during June 2014.
The City of Tyler’s Main Street Department announced that its award-winning 6x6@110 project that began in 2012, is back for 2014.
The project is a major fundraiser for operations of Gallery Main Street and arts programming emanating from the gallery. The idea of 6x6@110 is to get artists and arts supporters to create art on small canvases distributed by Gallery Main Street. The canvases are turned back in to the gallery, and then sold via special exhibit for $20 each. All proceeds will go to the gallery and arts programming.
This year’s goal is to have more than 1,000 canvases to hang in an exhibit that will begin with an opening party on June 6 at 6 p.m. Part of the fun of the purchasing process is that the purchaser will not know who painted the piece until the purchase is completed, and the canvas is turned over to reveal the artist’s name.
The exhibit will open on June 6 and will conclude in early July.
